Sweet Temptation/Sweets Overload – by Charlie Macias

Uh-oh, it’s the proverbial kid in a candy store!

Is that green Jell-o or a great big peanut butter cup wrapped in foil? The lollipop and its swirl gets you dizzy/weak, no?
Too much sugar makes you vulnerable and susceptible to suggestion.

A man could get himself in a lot of trouble if he goes on too long about that chocolate dress!

Do you like her licorice hair and wax candy lips?

Check out that snake in the cotton candy. Too much good stuff leads to the danger zone. Yes, right – it’s all too good to be true. And the snake is your special prize…surprise.

Did you notice that Doris’ recurring malicious fairy showed up again? I mentioned her at length in “That Just Gets My Goat.” (see November 2009)

You must decide if the fairy is innocent and simply encouraging the girl to enjoy the cotton candy –in which case you must think the fairy knows nothing about the snake.

Or – you may see the fairy pushing the weakened, dizzy girl to either fall into the cotton candy trap – or, even worse—is the fairy pushing the girl to share her sweets with the next customer?!!

Big-time sugar crash either way. Thanks, Fairy.

You all, remember the lesson
